I'm reading this article today, concerning the latest waste of taxpayer money by the Department of Homeland Security. This time they decided to send a decent-sized contingent of senior staff to a convention ... in Hawaii ... at a high dollar resort on Waikiki Beach.
Whatever, nothing new. Especially when DHS is concerned.
But then I get to the organizer, Major General Robert Lee of the Hawaii State National Guard, and his comments on why it was necessary to host the convention in Hawaii.
From the article, "Lee said that it was unlikely that anyone from the Pacific Rim would make the effort to attend "if this conference is held in Cleveland Ohio."
